You can customize your profile and manage how much information would you like to share with other members of the site. Try to be as open as you want to be, or just be discreet if you like. To do this, go on your privacy settings, adjust the viewers from everyone, subscribers, or members.
You can upload any photo that you like, but you must follow the community guidelines. Vulgar photos are strictly prohibited. There is a site administrator who will flag your pictures once he or she notices any sexually explicit or graphic content in them. Of course, you are encouraged to upload your real photo and not deceive other members.
There is no specific way for a user to verify if other members are real, but you can check out the profiles and check their activities like comments to other posts, and group discussions as well.
Some profiles are vulgar, their posts and photos are against the community guidelines. You can report inappropriate content by clicking on the flag link and filling out the report form.
You will notice that there are members who don't share a lot on their profiles. Others don't upload profile pictures or instead post a photo covering their faces. This is understandable since other LGBTQ+ are still not ready to come out of the closet so they keep their profiles anonymous.
